Enquire About Svalbard Circumnavigation by Albatros Expeditions

When Do You Want To Go?

An 11-day itinerary where you will enjoy the immense beauty of Svalbard on a high Arctic voyage among whales, walruses, polar bear and millions of sea birds. Experience summer in the Arctic with Albatros Expeditions onboard Ocean Atlantic, one of the few ice-class expedition ships built to withstand the North Pole's ice pack.

You'll visit the summer residence of the polar bear, as you cruise to 80 degrees north, getting as close as possible to the pack ice north of Svalbard. How far north you reach, and the exact route will depend on ice conditions, while the many amazing locations along the coast's of Svalbard's islands are kept navigable by the warm Gulf Stream. Onboard Ocean Atlantic you will experience areas of Svalbard otherwise not easily accessible. Visit extraordinary locations in the eastern part of Svalbard such as Edgeøya or 'Edge Island' and Bellsund and Hornsund in the south.

On several of the shorelines, you'll spot huge walruses enjoying the short Arctic summer as well as many whales and seals foraging along the edge of the pack ice and the coasts, with Zodiacs allowing you to have frequent shore landings and mini-exploration cruises in the fjords and glacial landscapes.

Highlights

  • Outings and shore visits in Zodiac inflatables
  • Sail in Spitsbergen’s fjords and glacial landscapes
  • Wildlife: polar bears, Arctic foxes, Svalbard reindeer, Arctic terns, walruses, whales and an abundance of birdlife
